Allen to welcome new data hub

December 6, 2017 by  

A new global data center campus is being built in Allen by CyrusOne. The data giant broke ground at the intersection of Stacey Road and Chelsea Boulevard recently.

CyrusOne president, Robert Jackson, said city officials and Allen Economic Development staff were easy to work with.

The Allen Data center will be 340,000 square feet in size, with three data centers. The company’s footprint when finished with this data center will be 1.7 million square feet.

Data centers are needed to store information for businesses and the high-tech companies. The user-friendly design of the buildings will minimize the use of natural resources.

The data center will require very few services, but will produce sales and property taxes. These will be used to help schools in Allen and will assist projects in the city.

Connected to several cloud providers, the set-up will allow direct access to one of the biggest fiber distribution hubs in the US. It will be linked to the CyrusOne Internet Exchange.

The campus will be built in three phases and, when completed, will have 100 megawatts of power. Each data center will have two floors and will measure 56 feet in height.

Allen printing companies can help technology companies and businesses with marketing services for special events, conventions, and meetings when new facilities are up and running.
